Kind of disappointed that THE LITTLE PRINCE didn’t make it in, but that might be collateral damage of Paramount putting it straight to NETFLIX in the United States instead of giving it a proper theatrical release.

Here is hoping that the Oscar goes to Isabelle Huppert.

I didn’t expect so many Arrival nominations – I’m happy with those. I’m yet to see a fair few of the nominated films as usual so don’t have much of a say. I’m surprised Jackie didn’t get nominated for best film, but I haven’t actually seen that either so can’t comment – I just thought it would have been in there.

Michael Shannon nominated for supporting actor, The Lobster for screenplay, Hidden Figures for several categories including best film, a diverse group of nominees overall, what’s not to like.

For me La La Land is just as valid and deserving an awards nominee / winner as Mad Max was last year. A good film is a good film regardless of genre. I groaned when I heard of it, but saw it because of all the buzz, and really liked it.

I thought it could’ve lost the car parking and planetarium numbers, relying on just the talking for those bits, and thought the final look back was the teensiest bit too long, but it was a very strong and skilfully told story with good acting from Stone and Gosling, definitely a buy on blu ray.

The Oscar voters were very nice to Mel Gibson too. I’m really looking forward to seeing Hacksaw Ridge when it opens in the UK this weekend, and I really want to see Hell Or High Water and Elle.
